The support line is staffed by expert advisers who work for Aberlour and Barnardo’s.

It aims to provide information and support to local families, including young people and carers, who are seeking advice and support on things such as parenting challenges, family difficulties, isolation, mental health and wellbeing, relationship problems, financial and practical challenges

Councillor Fiona Collie, inset, spokesperson for Health and Social Care explained: “We want to ensure no family is left feeling isolated and struggling during these challenging times, so if you need a safe space to talk, explore your feelings and find options for a positive way forward, please call the support line on 01324 501200.”
